History:

St.Patricks F.P.F.C were formed in season 1953/54. In the clubs early years they competed in the Glasgow and District F.P.A.F.L, in which they had reasonable success. By the time the early seventies came the club decided that their future lay elsewhere and they appropriately joined the West of Scotland Football League.From there the club climbed steadily throught the divisions, winning various league titles on the way culminating in season 1989/90 when they won the treble, the League Championship, League Cup and the Scottish Amateur cup at Hampden Park, defeating Stanley 1-0 courtesy of David McWilliams goal.

The following season the club moved to the newly formed Scottish Amateur Premier Division and have since established themselves there, winning six League Championships, three league cups and finally the Premier Challenge cup in season 1999/00 days after winning the Scottish Amateur Cup for a second time. St.Pats contested the Scottish Amateur Cup for a third time in season 2002 at Hampden park where they narrowly lost To Dalziel H.S.F.P.

Most recently in Season 2004/05 the first team successfully defended the league championship while also getting to the final of the West of Scotland Amateur Cup for the first time in the clubs history. They lost 2-0 in an evenly contested final at Fir Park to Drumchapel United. The second team also had success by gaining promotion in their first season in the Scottish Amateur League.

In season 2005/06 St.Pats won the Scottish Amateur Cup for a third time in their history defeating Falkirk Amateurs in the final at Hampden 3-1.

The following year in season 2006/07 they won the West of Scotland Cup gaining revenge on Drumchapel United for the previous defeat winning 3-2 at Fir park.

Now competing in the Central Scottish League the first team won Division 1a in their first season in the league in season 2008/09. In season 2009/10 in their first season in the premier league they finished in 5th position and in season 2010/11 they finished 3rd.

The second team also gained promotion in their first season in the Greater Glasgow league in 2009/10, finishing second in the third division. The following season 2010/11 saw them win the division 2 championship and are now competing in the 1st Division in season.
